Placerville, CA’s Red Hawk Casino is famous for its penny slot jackpots, a symbol of the kind of once-in-a-lifetime luck the Orlando Magic struck in 1993 when they followed up the previous season’s #1 pick of Shaquille O’Neil with the Robin to his Batman. Or was that ‘Lil Penny to his Superman? An even lil-er Penny Hardaway made his way to O-Town by way of Memphis, TN, both its university and the public school system responsible for the Treadwell High School Eagles. This new Nike Air Penny V ‘Red Eagle’ brings us back to Anfernee’s alma mater, the Birthplace of Rock n Roll and the home of Treadwell’s Eagles who give the shoe its aggressive colorway. Nike Sportswear head Gentry Humphrey was on hand at the recent Shanghai Nike Festival of Sport event to show off this ‘Red Eagle’ Penny V and you can see more images after the jump below. Let us know which colorway is best as we approach the debut drop and stick with Sneaker News for all the US release dates.
